When Beauty is All That Matters
When Beauty is All That Matters, oil on 28×36 gallery wrapped canvas. As women, one ugly truth might be that we learn from others what to think of how we look and if, in the eyes of others, we are not attractive, we see ourselves as ugly. External influence traps our thought and deed and further shapes how we think about ourselves. That whisper from the magazine, that shout from the entertainment industry, that web of busy bodies spinning idealized standards of beauty and photo-ops. It is interesting to note that spider webs are a silk protein fiber and have a tensile strength compared to steel.
